Purchasing a Puppy
Our puppies' parents have championship awards in their bloodlines. Naturally, we are proud of their conformation and temperament. All of our puppies are AKC or APRI registered. Puppies are sold strictly as pets—not as breeding stock. The price of the puppies we routinely offer to families reflects this. For this reason we will send you the registration papers after your puppy has been spayed or neutered. This is usually done at 6 months of age by a licensed veterinarian. In the meantime, you will receive a copy of the AKC or APRI registration papers.
All perspective buyers are requested to call before any puppies are purchased. Once we get to know each other and are comfortable with a Norwich puppy being the breed for your family, a $500 deposit is required as a commitment on your part. The deposit will be applied toward the price of the puppy. Prices of the puppies may vary and are therefore not included here.
Once we receive your deposit, we will send you a deposit receipt and will reserve the puppy of your choice and consider him sold to you alone. Selection of the puppy is made on a first-deposit down, first-to-pick a puppy sequence. The balance of the purchase is required 2 weeks prior to shipment unless you personally pick up the puppy at our place. We cannot make airline reservations unless we receive the balance of the purchase, including shipping charge (this is discussed under “Shipping Information”).
We accept cashier’s checks, money orders, or PayPal https://www.paypal.com/ (add $50.00 for PayPal processing fee). We suggest you use either FedEx or UPS, as they use tracking numbers at no extra charge. If you plan on using the U.S. Postal Service, please send your payment by U.S. certified mail. Should we not receive full payment by the time the puppy is 10 weeks old, your purchase will become void and the deposit forfeited.
Micro-chipping is available for all puppies. Registration with 24PetWatch www.24petwatch.com is included in the price of the chip. 24PetWatch, a trademark of Pet Health Services Inc., networks with other companies to find your pet if ever lost or stolen. Most rescue centers and vets have a scanner that allows them to read the chip ID number and server, so your pet can be recovered. Please let us know if you would like this additional service.
